I've been getting casting and painting lessons from a good friend of mine, and here are the results of my first completely-solo attempt. I made these up as fridge magnets that I'll give away to family.



Here they are hanging proudly on my fridge

This one's my favorite


Thanks for looking!

Awesome, Finkster! They look great! Is that brown color paint, or its it the color of the resin?

Thanks guys. The resin was actualy a shockingly-bright white. I put on a red-brown primer and dry-brushed on various combinations of watered-down reds, browns, and yellows and then covered it all with a few coats of satin poly.
